The Topics:
Apple Takes Over

History was made Wednesday when Apple, the maker of iPods, iPhones and iPads, shot past Microsoft, the computer software giant, to become the world's most valuable technology company.

Google's Pac-Man Costs Millions

According to this site's math, nearly 5 million hours were waisted as a result of Google putting a playable PacMan game on its home page. How many hours do you think are waisted on Facebook? Or online games in general?

AOL Celebrates 25 Years

In related news, it is also the 25th anniversary of the .com domain. Is a half a century of the Internet a lifetime?

Google TV

Does the world really need GoogleTV? Do we really want a Google Phone, Google Voice, Google Email, Google Search and now Google TV? I don't. But I sure would love an AppleTV that didn't suck.

Tony Blair, Venture Capitalist

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair joins Kohsla ventures as a "senior advisor." Was Vinod envious of KP's relationship with Al Gore?
